    I think anyone that would willingly go with CR England must be on drugs to begin with.

    Send any drugs you want tested to:

    Dave_in_AZ
    c/o TTR
    And we will test them.

    I will say at least you have integrity for being forthcoming.

    Not coming off like a con man, " I never did drugs in my life, but since I decided to get a CDL I tried pot for the first time."

    If you really want to move forward with your life go clean. You've waited how ever many years old you are to get into trucking. Awhile longer won't hurt.

    If its literally your only option, get the hair test done at 2 seperate labs at your own expense and THEN if those are clean i MIGHT proceed, but if this is literally the LAST option on the table, you probably wont be able to.

    The advice given is solid, wait and go to a place that doesnt do hair testing, its ironic that cr england tests so aggressively for drugs but not skills or brains (ie also adding to the list saying cr england is worse than a last choice)

    I hate to pop everyone's balloon, but if someone wants to spend the money, they can go way, way back.

    CRE does it for a year. They tell you if you've not been clean for a year, don't come.

    Recently, one company went back 6 mos. and fired a driver applicant.
    He now has to do the SAP program and may not even be hired anywhere after that.

    first of all thank you for your honest and straight to the point answer .

    I found the company calling me today reconfirming my first day on the orientation by mid June and I couldn’t hold it away from my recruiter , I told him my worries and informed him with my exact days & doses .

    I explained to him that I didn’t know that i will go through all of that to start my trucking career or even understanding the definition of the drug test here in us as new immigrant.

    Everything is still kinda new to me .

    He explained to me that only my urin will be reporting to dot and hair test is not but will make me lose the chances to work for this company for at least 3 years .

    iam planing before making my mind is to do my own test on 2 different labs to get clear results and see from there if iam good to go or push this job offer till September.

    What he didn't tell you is that while urine is only one reported to dot, they will tell potential future employers you failed a hair drug test.
